This report aims to find out the importance/relevance of “Summer Internship” for MBA Students as a part of curriculum. The audiences who have been surveyed areMBA students of BITS Pilani as well as students from different colleges. We had created a questionnaire seeking student’s views on “Summer Internship” and this questionnaire was floated on Social Networking Sites, Emails, etc. Good number of students participated in this survey and results indicate that more than 80% of students feel that “Summer Internship” should be made a compulsory or mandatory part of MBA curriculum itself. Further as our opinion, we would definitely like to request our faculties to take a look in this matter if possible and based on the permissions, revise the curriculum if possible.
With the rise in number of MBA Schools in our country, the environment for students is becoming truly competitive. And in this competitive environment, the first thing which comes to mind is - MBA students need to be pro-active and effectively utilize their time. This is the sole reason why we have selected this project. There are lots of B-Schools offering top-class education in India. But it is not only the class education that matters; student can learn better if they spend a considerable time in industry too. So if they go for industry experience over that period, after first year and before choosing specialization, they can develop more interest in their chosen field. So the report presents
* The survey which we have floated across
* Responses from that survey.
* Based on the responses, we have made analysis on same
* Try to express our opinion based on the consensus.
